ATLANTA-- Two Memphis men have been indicted in connection with a string of violent home invasions in Buckhead.
Leon Scott, 25, and Mario Deandre Jackson, 28, face robbery, kidnapping and firearms charges. They're accused of breaking into a home on Paces Ridge in Buckhead May 25 and terrorizing a family.
According to the US Attorney John Horn, Jackson was arrested July 9 when Georgia State Patrol officers pulled over the car in which he was a passenger. Two guns reported stolen during other robberies were found in the vehicle.
"[Jackson and Scott] allegedly traveled to Georgia from outside the state for the purpose of robbing the family, and forcing them at gunpoint to remove money from an ATM and to turn over other valuables, including a wedding band," Horn said in a written statement.
